PARSIPPANY — Not sure what to do with the kids during those last two weeks of August? The Friends of the Parsippany Library have partnered with Mad Science and Dawn Lau Dance Company to offer Parsippany students the opportunity to participate in half-day science and arts camps, with $20.00 of each registration going back to the Friends of the Parsippany Library. The Friends will donate all proceeds to the library for the purchase of additional children’s programming and materials.
Camp will be offered at both the Main Library and Lake Hiawatha locations and be open to Parsippany residents entering first through fifth grade.
At the Mad Science’s Slimy Potions Camp for students entering grades one and two, students will create chemical reactions, learn to make bath fizzers, create acid/base volcanoes and more. For students entering grades third through fifth, Mad Science is offering Invention-ation Camp, where campers will create catapults and forts, construct working light sticks, and assemble a set of circuits with batteries and light bulbs- all using basic materials, simple machines, and tips from famous inventors.
At Dawn Lau Dance Company’s camp, children will experience three art disciplines daily. For one hour they will explore the world of art, creating their own masterpieces. During the second hour they will explore different genres of dance, to be followed by theatre consisting of improvisation.
